    Technically it has 4 a ultra wide a fix and a macro as well as a LiDAR scanner, but they are all fixed on the phone's body so you can unscrew them and change them.

    Well thats a problem. Take this photo

    IMG_5398.jpg

    It was part of a LIVE photo that iPhones will do a computational photography and pick the best image but you can go in and edit it to get what you want. Originally the iPhone selected as the computational photo with the skateboard on the ground

    Like this

    IMG_5863.jpg

    or you could pick this

    IMG_5864.jpg

    I just get how to shoot on an iPhone I'm intimidated by this



    See all those little buttons and dials and then there are more and more menus. I haven't thought abut fstop, exposure and speed in over 30 years.

    Some of the Panasonic Lumix cameras have a pre-burst mode where they will start recording for 1 second before you press the shutter button.

    So do I hit the Buy It Now on eBay for the Fuji X100V and pay the $500 I got to have it now idiot Tax or wait out the waitlist from a local reputable camera shop that will sell it at the MSRP without the supply shortage price gouging ?

    OK now the accessory parade

    Aside from the additional battery, dual battery charger, protective filter to make it waterproof and protect the lens, and a leather strap.

    Adding this

    What is a shutter?


    350 shots between charges or 55 mins of video before a needed recharge. I would have thought more for a simple point and shoot. I suppose you can recharge it from the Tesla.

    From all reviews it needs batteries to fill up the usable life of the camera when you are on vacation.

    You know what never needs batteries to keep on shooting ? ……. an iPhone

    I hope you change your ring tone to a loud leaf shutter sound. that iPhone is your connection to your business. having a seperate way to take photos should keep your phone tucked away, out of sight and marginally safer.

    That Fuji will be a great camera to pull out and toss around. A spring clip mount to attach it to things and it will a very cool photo/video multitool. Look forward to hearing the audio you record on it.

    I love the shutter click. it has meaning. It reminds me that i am taking a photo. It is even fun on the phone.

    I don't steal images without notice. My human subjects known or unknown to me should be aware that i am taking their image. A photographer should always ask the subject in frame if it ok take a photo or a video of them or give them a chance to get out of frame within reason. The only time i do not is in a public space among a crowd of folks making them one of many and granting tacit permissions.

    I will either take the shot then ask permission or ask permission then take the shot. The later always end up with a poorer shot because they always become self conscience, so I prefer to shoot first and ask permission after

    ^ iPhones rule!

    Are those small hands or is that the size of the camera?

    I'm still in that camp, I'm worried if this "REAL" camera can capture these kinds of photos as fast and as unobtrusive as I can with my iPhone.

    The iPhone is so good. You do have the eye for composition. It is way easier to use phone without drawing attention to yourself. You will have to now think about using the camera, a switch in the brain will have to be triggered. It will be a great hobby for you to explore. Excited for you in this new chapter.

    That's a pretty wide lens. Wondering what the edges look like. Pretty good I'd think.

    More like an iPhone in comparison.

    The telephoto adapter for an approximate 50mm looks good too. Would be tempted.

    $283 to convert 35mm equivalent lens to a 28mm equivalent? That seems spendy to me.

    I just sat in my 1/2 million dollar boat listed for 3500 in today market. It is all relative.

    for what it's worth. I finally returned my set of Zeiss cine primes I got in December. I recognized it was cheaper to rent them.

    I think I will used the 28mm lens for landscape and architectural work. The 50 mm might be too much ( although it does look cool ) but I'm fine with just moving myself closer.

    I think I’m gonna spend most of the time just figuring it out as it comes before I start fussing with attachment lenses on a fix lens camera.

    From what I understand they have some really cool out of the box pre-programed "Film" jpeg settings that you can toggle through using a customizing scroll wheel. So we will see
